Carpocoris (Carpocoris) mediterraneus mediterraneus Tamanini, 1958 

Carpocoris mediterraneus mediterraneus Tamanini, 1958: 360  ; Carpocoris mediterraneus mediterraneus  var. incerta Tamanini, 1958: 362  ; Carpocoris mediterraneus mediterraneus  var. maculosa Tamanni, 1958: 362  .

Distribution in Iran. Ardabil ( Wagner 1968; Modarres Awal 1996 b, 1997 b), East Azarbaijan ( Wagner 1968; Nikdel et al. 2011), Fars, Tehran ( Hoberlandt 1997), Golestan (Tamanini 1958; Putshkov 1965; Wagner 1968; Heiss 2002), Mazandaran ( Wagner 1968; Sakenin et al. 2008; Heiss 2002), Guilan, Sistan & Baluchestan ( Wagner 1968), Kerman ( Wagner 1968; Hoberlandt 1997), Khorasan ( Hoberlandt 1997; Modarres Awal 2008), West Azarbaijan (Nateq Golestan 2004; Nateq Golestan et al. 2004, 2010 a, b, c, 2011), Iran (no locality cited) ( Rider 2006; Taghizadeh et al. 2010).

General distribution. Mediterranean basin, Pontian, Central Asia ( Iran, Iraq, Turkmenistan), Ethiopia.

Host plants. On Cirsium  sp., and Poaceae  ( Modarres Awal 1996 b, 1997 b), Asteraceae  ( Heiss 2002; Nateq Golestan et al. 2011), Cyperus officinalis  ( Cyperaceae  ), Tradescantia virginiana  ( Commelinaceae  ) (Sakenin et al. 2008), sorghum ( Taghizadeh et al. 2010), Echinops viscosus  ( Asteraceae  ), Pitacia vera  ( Anacardiaceae  ) ( Nateq Golestan et al. 2011).

Comments. This species was synonymized with C. fuscispinus  ( Ribes et al. 2008; Aukema et al. 2013; Ribes & Pagola Carte 2013), but more recently, DNA characters confirm its separate status ( Lupoli et al. 2013); we follow this last study and treat mediterraneus  as a valid species.
